Quality Services

The Quality Department coordinates and participates in hospital-wide performance improvement.

Quality surveillance, risk management, and maintaining compliance to The Joint Commission standards is a large focus for our staff. Members of the Quality Department participate in committees throughout the organization that focus on safety and quality for patients of SSMH. The Quality Department consists of the Directory of Quality, the Infection Control and Employee Health Nurse, the Quality and Compliance Analyst Registered Nurse, and the Manager of Customer Service and Risk.
